Quick Reference

(1811–85).

Belfast-born architect who worked in Canada from 1830. His best-known works are the Church of St George, Kingston, Ontario (1859), a variant on Gibbs's St Martin-in-the-Fields, and the City Hall and Market Building, also in Kingston (1842–4), in a robust mixture of Neo-Classicism and late-Georgian styles that looks back, perhaps, to the Baroque of Hawksmoor and Vanbrugh, although Gandon's work in Dublin is called to mind.
